INTRODUCTION:

“Photography is an austere and blazing poetry of the real." - Ansel Adams

           The role of photography as a rewarding hobby is quite obvious. But we believe it can be more than that. It can add a spark to a mundane life by opening up students creative side. When nurtured with care, it can become an eloquent language of self-expression. It can compel students to explore and look around more carefully. It can lead us to discover not only the world but also ourselves in the process. It can make us more human.
           But what you need to fulfill this vast array of possibilities is mastery of your tools, an understanding of light and a grip on the fundamentals. You need a sound foundation on which to build a lofty monument of work. And that is what this club provides.

 

OBJECTIVES:

 

Delving into both the art and the science of photography from the grassroots, this club will demystify the subject completely and help you make the camera an extension of your body and mind, so matters of exposure, focusing and metering don't come in your way when you wish to translate your glorious vision to an unforgettable picture.

Dedicated to achieving all this is our illustrious team of professional photographers who are not only passionate about the art, but also about teaching it! Employing highly simplified content, a friendly delivery style and plenty of practical exercises, we ensure you leave the club well-trained, transformed and empowered to wield the camera like a wand.

Specifically, these are some of the things you'll be able to do after the club :

 

  • Choose appropriate tools for your intended genre of photography
  • Use the apt exposure program mode for any situation
  • Make technically sound as well as aesthetically pleasing images
  • Avoid getting blurry pictures in low light
  • Use different techniques to achieve unusual and striking results.
